    If I got a microsite ranked really high in Google could I run a straight redirect to my main site?

    I was thinking about putting a redirect inside an iframe on the page, and only showing the iframe if the user agent isn't a bot, as I've heard Google doesn't read iframes... Is this true?

    Or if not whats the best way to go about it?

    first, google reads iframes - so dont count on that
    secondly, redirecting based on useragent only will probably trigger a ban extremely fast since useragents strings are simple to customize and fake.
    if you want to differentiate a real user from Google bot / manual reviewer, you'll need more than just useragents string, such as:

    1. bots ip's and net ranges - you need to collect lots of data
    2. cookies
    3. referrers
    4. dynamic url parameters
    5. geo ip's detection
    and many more
